I've been blogging quite a bit about the ongoing debates and mud-slinging surrounding the NOLA schools.... so much so that I have given up trying to update here.

There's a small search box in the top left corner of my blog page. You can search on "schools", or "charter", or "voucher" - or combinations thereof. Lots of the entries are cross-linked, and the most recent update I wrote was yesterday (Nov 9).

(oops - I wrote again about it (and other things). Sorry bout that...
Algiers! Are You Ready?

Or you can use this link to find all "Polimom Says..." blog entries containing the words "algiers schools".

Does anyone have any infor on Holy Name of Mary? I've tried calling the school and just get an old recording. I've also called the church and Fr. John indicates that masses have started up (this past Saturday and Sunday). Apparently, they're using the school cafeteria as a chapel since there is no AC in the church. I've left a message for Fr. John but I'm sure he's busy with many other things.
According to my father who has been in the neighborhood, the school sustained little damage and it has been repaired. Our house also is fine with water and electricity so we'd like to come home soon. Just need schooling for our 6 year old.

Anyway, if anyone has any info it would be greatly appreciated. Also, if anyone is doing any homeschooling in the point that might work for us too. My wife has a degree in early childhood education and she's willing to do some at home instruction.

Thanks for any help.
